Jonathan Larsen Joins Avison Young
The industry vet will run the West LA office of the brokerage, overseeing day-to-day operations as managing director. Jonathan has had quite the career, most recently launching Cassidy Turley's LA office (prior to the firm becoming DTZ), where he grew it from a small post into a 35-employee operation. Before that, he spent 7 years with Transwestern, in addition to stints at Trammell Crow and CBRE (when it was still known as CB Richard Ellis). Jonathan has spoken at several Bisnow events and just told us last month at our 5th Annual State of the LA Market that rental rates in the market will continue to rise in the city, even calling it a "scary time for tenants."
